***************** SOLVE FOR VEIL OF DARKNESS *********************** Ok, the solve will work this way: I shall try to deal with each heading in the prophecy which you will receive from Kiril, in the house where you start off. Also, make sure to talk to the people in the bar often. They will reveal new locations. Also, always keep a lot of silver pieces around. You can earn money by selling herbs and by finding it. As well, I have found no apparent advantages to killing creatures, rather then avoiding them. However, some must be killed ( werewolf, skeletons in the fortress, zombie Andrei ). Vampires can be killed with holy water, and some creatures can only be harmed by a torch or a rowan staff. "From the ever dark sky shall he descend in a bird of steel" "Salvation for those who have been unrightously damned" These two parts of the prophecy become automatically done as you speak to Kiril. He will quest you for a carpenters hammer. Talk to his daughter again ( you speak to her first as soon as you wake up ). She will give you a ribbon. You will need it later! Go to Kiril, ask him for "PIPE". Ask his servant, Ivan for "COINS"...he will give you a pouch with 12 silver pieces. "He shall deny the part he is destined to play" "Until he find the bloodied tool most foul" Go around the village, talk to the people. Make sure you go to the apothecary and buy the FENNEL SEEDS for 1 silver coin. You will need them. Go to the "severed Head" tavern, and ask the barkeep for the "LIGHT". He will give you a match.

Go to the ruined house at the edge of the town. Find the trail of blood. Push the bookcase where the bloody trail ends to the left. Go through the secret door, get the bloody hammer, and the torn shirt fragment. Return to Kiril. He will tell you some things, and the two prophecy parts will become solved. He will also give you the prophecy. "He must free a man cursed for curiosity's sake" Go to the bar. Talk to the people again. You may get a map. Use the map and venture to the farmer.
